Marquis All Or Nothing Against The Phillies

Batting 5th, Ike Davis was 1-4 with 1 double (his 33rd) and 1 run scored against the Brewers.

Batting 6th, Danny Valencia was 1-4 against the Royals.

Ian Kinsler had the night off. Resting for the playoffs, no doubt.

Ryan Braun was a late scratch from today's lineup due to flu-like symptoms.

In his last start of the year, Jason Marquis received a no-decision against the Phillies. He went 6 innings and gave up 1 run on 7 hits, 1 BB, and 7 Ks. His groundball to flyball ratio was 15-2. At the plate, he was 1-2. Marquis had 4 quality starts in his last 5 outings. He's really been all or nothing against the Phillies this year. In 2 of his starts against them, he gave up 13 runs (12 earned) in 4 2/3 innings. Ouch. In 2 other starts, he gave up 2 runs in 11 innings.

Scott Feldman picked up his 11th loss of the year. He went 4 1/3 innings and gave up 3 runs on 5 hits, 2 BBs, and 2 Ks against the Mariners. Let's be real. The Mariners don't strike fear in the hearts of any pitching staff. I didn't like Feldman's chances of making the Rangers' postseason roster before this start...

Yeah, I can't imagine the Rangers putting Feldman on their post season roster. But maybe they will anyway.

Ike's double was clutch as it came in the ninth and started the two run rally that won the game. He scored the tying run.

And to answer your question, Dave Kingman was one of the biggest zeroes that ever played the game. He once sent a dead rat to a female reporter. Nice guy. NOT.
